Philips 55PFL5507K/12 HD TV goes black after a few seconds
I recently got an old HD TV, Philips 55PFL5507K/12. I used it to watch movies (streaming and local files) from the computer using HDMI. For a while it was all fine, but then it started to go black.
When I first turn on the TV, the initializing screen shows up, sometimes I even get a glimpse of my computer screen, but then the screen turns black. I see the red LED blinks in response of button presses so I know the commands are received, and it turns on when I turn the TV off (meaning the TV is indeed off now). The next time I turn the TV on, nothing shows up and the screen stays black. Only after taking it out of the power socket and back in the screen will turn on again for a few seconds on the first turn on.
I opened up the back cover to see if something on the board pops out as burned, or to see if I can find a burned fuse, in vain.
Any suggestion will be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
